Customer Question
I recently bought a 2010...
I recently bought a 2010 Pathfinder with 20,000 miles on it. When I drive it over 60mph it makes a high pitched eeeeeh sound. It seems like it is coming from the fan inside the vents,but it doesn't seem to change any on différt settings or if the fan is turned completely off. It is definitely worse when it is windy. I had it looked at the dealership ,but they did not fix it. Any ideas as to what would cause this?

Hi there, thanks for your question.
Does it sound like its coming from the dash area? or more towards the roof area?

The dash.
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 3 years ago
Thanks, ***** ***** common reasons we see this type of thing is from roof rack noises. Those do not sound like they are coming from the dash area though. If the noise sounds as though it/s coming from the dash at high speeds I would inspect your wipers and cowl and even windshield seal for and worn or loose parts which can cause wind noise.
